Covering The Dash

I am looking for some suggestions on how I should finish this dash. Once I cover the two parts, there will be a small but uneven gap. I realize that I did not plan this out correctly. The bottom portion can be removed so I can get behind the dash. With that in mind; How could I finish off the seam so it would look custom, but also be removable? I will be covering it in Ultra Leather. Hopefully Dan can work his magic. Here are some photos

Thanks
Kirk

Kirk: Really hard to see anything in your pics. Can you try again and get them to come out bigger? Without a closer look, can you attach a welt to the top edge of the lower piece after it is covered?

Yes Dan; I was thinking that welt would also work. I was also trying to finish it off with some chrome or polished aluminum piece. Just having a hard time finding a way to attach it cleanly. Tonight I will attach more photos when I get home. If you come up with an idea; I want to hear it.

Check out these flexible self adhesive chrome extrusions. They would need a perfectly flat surface to attach them to, and adding some other fasteners to them would probably be necessary, but this stuff looks really good. CLICK HERE

Dan

I checked out the flex chrome. I think that might work in this case. It will give me the look that I am after. I will order some and put it to the test.

Wantabe; Thank you for the nice comment, Makes you want to back out and do more.

Thank you guys, I will be gone for a couple days, but when I get back I will post some photos of the dash and interior complete.

Thanks
Kirk

Hi Guys

Here are some photos of my interior so far. Still have to install seats. I will get to that next week along with the second set of speakers. I just have to make the pods.
